Subject: My first
This was my first Dead concert, my first (and last) experience smoking a "european", The first time my folks let me go to a concert alone (I was 14).
This was the day my world changed.
I can't believe this show is online.
Hail all who made this possible!

Subject: Pure '71
This is '71 at it's best. A rewarding listen. The band is on and the recording is tight. Not epic just real good. Check out Jerry's vocals. Tasty.

Subject: SOLID PERFORMANCE
Had this show on cassette from a place called Prime Cuts on L.I. but it was not complete ,after Me& Bobby McGee it ended.It was a great show anyway but now that I have the entire concert it's even better.As always the will forever bring a smile to my face.

This is an early GD show that got me hooked. The amazingly beautiful Wharf Rat features some truly magnificent Jerry leads that sparkle with color. A romp roasting Hard to Handle features the band culminating with a unique, lightning fast, bluegrass picking style by Jer leading the crescendo. A hell of a good time Cumberland keeps the momentum moving. This is peak Dead folks, along the lines of Harpur College.

Subject: hiss what hiss? yeah I know.
How spoiled are some of these reviewers? We used to kill over some shit box vinyl bootleg that was recorded on "yer moms" old reel to reel. This recording has less hiss than most of the commercially produced live albums back in the day. Get a fricking grip jev; these are historic recordings. April 71 is one of the best moments in Dead history and this IS THE HTH. That being said we are a bunch of nit-pickers. Remember the "just another picky deadhead" bumper sticker..quack!

Subject: Boo hiss?
I've been streaming this show(simultaneously downloading)and I just don't hear any hiss, and assuming there is some, my old ears aren't picking it up. As far as the show goes, I'm a soft touch when it comes to '71, but this is yet another(so far)excellent performance, with great sound! This era has such an intimate feel to it, something that was lost as time marched on and the venue's got bigger, etc. Turn the bright lights way down low, pretend it's 1971, and...ah, I can almost see my old Magnavox now.

hey now! all these shows are so good!!!!!!! the only thing that really seperates one from the other is that each building has different electrical issues and every time recording gear is torn down and set up again things change....this show is great, but i will go forward a few shows to avoid this hissy recording ---- dead rocks right in the middle of rat, bobby's guitar is brought up to a earshattering level.....just knitpickin, guys---
